Some reward for the hard work

Vistas 2013’, an inter-college fest organised by the students of  PES College of Business Management, had an interesting mix of cultural programmes as well as competitions based on the concepts of management.

‘Magesterium’, which tested the competitors’ skills in various fields like finance and human resource, saw students racking their brains and using the concepts learnt to come up with the best answer. Other technical rounds like best manager and ‘business quiz’ tested their knowledge about the subject.

 While SJCC won the marketing and public relations events, Christ University bagged the prize for business quiz, ‘best manager’, finance and human resource events, thereby lifting the trophy for all-round championship.

The fest saw some very talented students come up on stage to showcase their talent – a break from the routine, they enjoyed themselves.

The cultural bonanza ‘Raptures’, saw the hosts presenting an energetic dance number and a colourful fashion show. The cultural team also presented ‘Mad Ads’ and a couple of songs at the programme. Christ University presented a foot-tapping dance number and won the solo and group dance competitions while KLE College walked away as the winners of the fashion show.

Jayanth, one of the coordinators of the fest, explains that putting the fest together was a challenging task. “We received very good comments from the participants and some of them also suggested ways to improve the fest. It was a team effort and we all did our bit towards making this fest a successful one. We had to manage our academics and also plan for the fest.

However, our teachers gave us enough time to prepare and run around for the fest,” he states. Students note that they had made separate teams which handled each and every aspect of the fest.

“We made separate teams which looked into aspects like management, sponsorship and invitation. We had invited colleges from across the country and our team went to all the colleges in the City to hand over the invitations. The sponsorship team met the head honchos of several companies for their support and the management team made sure that everything went on smoothly during the fest.

We began preparing for the fest months in advance and our hard work has paid off. Now that the fest has come to an end, we are back to the routine and aim to come back with a bigger and better fest next year,” informs Dixit, a student coordinator.
